DINNER POWERED BY THE NEIGHBORHOOD Dumpling Kingdom, Allston | Wu Er, Brookline Village | Szechuan Garden, Brookline Village
99 percent of the time, when people think Asian food, they automatically think beer instead of wine. It's just reflex, and if anyone does think of wine, it's Riesling or G'vertz or something light. It seems like no one's really trying to make the Asian cuisine matches with wine that we make with other cuisines, and this class is going to change all that.
This dinner class will taste and learn 6 different wine and food pairings designed to help you understand how wine pairing works, especially with unique worldwide flavors. You'll be ordering your favorite Malbec with spicy lemongrass beef in no time!
